Cyfrol o ryddiaith a barddoniaeth hamddenol wedi'i ganoli ar Afon Teifi gan awdur a ddychwelodd i'w sir enedigol wedi cyfnod o fyw oddi yno. Dyma gasgliad o grwydriadau llawn swyn a syndod, yn blethiad o atgofion, cerddi a rhyddiaith sylwgar a chraff, gyda'r awdur yn teithio trwy amser a gofod, gan adlewyrchu prydferthwch mannau cudd a'r rhyfeddod o fod yn aelod o'r hil ddynol.
Darparwyd yr isod gan y Cyhoeddwr:
Jack Smylie Wild is a poet, nature writer and award-winning baker. Born in Aberystwyth in 1989, but mostly raised on the edge of Dartmoor, he has been moving between Wales and England for nearly 30 years. It was from his home in Buckfastleigh that as a teenager Jack began wandering, and writing about, the moors and its rivers. He has been captivated by wild spaces ever since. In 2011 Jack won the Write It, Make It Happen award, which financed an expedition to Central America to write a collection of poetry about the remote cloud forests of Nicaragua. After graduating from Cardiff University in 2012 with a BA (Honours) in Philosophy, he made a permanent return to his country, and county, of birth, settling in Llandysul with his partner Seren. It was here, jobless and with time on his hands, that he began to heed the calls of Afon Teifi – to explore her length and breadth; her creatures and her catchment. Jack now resides in Cardigan, with his wife and young sons, a stone's throw from the river he loves.
